Mike Sorrentio, who rose to fame as The Situation on MTV’s hit “Jersey Shore, was “sentenced to eight months in jail on Friday for admittedly dodging taxes on some of his income,” reports the New York Post’s Page Six.
The story continues, “A lawyer for the 37-year-old begged the judge for probation, insisting that he’s cleaned up his act, but prosecutors wanted 14 months.”
Page Six adds, “Sorrentino and his older brother, Marc, were indicted in 2014 on conspiracy charges related to $8.9 million in income they raked in between 2010 and 2013. The siblings were accused of underreporting their earnings to avoid paying federal taxes.”
